Three steps to using The Bible Curriculum...
1. How long is your session?
If your session is 45 minutes plan to divide it into three 15 minute sections - 15 minutes story telling, 15 minutes craft making and 15 minutes playing a Re:verse game with a brief look at a Christian topic.
Many groups teaching 45 minute sessions choose to deliver our resources using a work-shop style model. Take a look at Carousel.
If your session is 30 minutes plan to divide it into two 15 minute sections - 15 minutes story telling and 15 minutes craft making.
If your session is 15 minutes plan to play a Re:verse game with a brief look at a Christian topic.
2. Select your Session Planners
You will need to download at least one planner for your session.
For a 45 minute session you will need both a Story-Craft planner and a Re:verse game planner
For a 45 minute work-shop style session download a Carousel planner
For a 30 minute session you will need just a Story-Craft planner
For a 15 minute session you will need a Re:verse game planner
To follow our curriculum download planners from our Current resources page. Simply find the relevant date and select the planner/s you require.
If you have more than one teacher per session, email the planners to your team or direct them to the current resources page.
3. Download extra resources
Once your team have read through their planners and gathered the resources they need, encourage them to supplement their story with additional resources or take a look at our simple theology for children as they prepare to talk about the Christian topic.
Timeline Flashcards are useful for putting Bible stories in context and 'setting the scene' before telling a story.
